Living Independently for Elders (LIFE)

2 min read

The Living Independently for Elders (LIFE) program also goes by the name of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).

PACE provides medical care and supportive services. If you are able to live at home safely but need help caring for yourself, PACE may provide a stay-at-home alternative to living in a nursing home. The goal is to keep you independent by providing assistance and medical care to you at your home or close to your home.

PACE provides various services, including:

  • Primary medical care
  • Doctors for specialty care
  • Prescription drugs
  • Adult day care
  • Home health care and personal care
  • Help with chores and meal preparation
  • Physical therapy services
  • Transportation to medical appointments

How do I apply?

You must contact a LIFE provider to see if you can take part in this program. Enter your ZIP code on the National PACE Association's websiteto find your local LIFE provider. Because the LIFE program is not available in all areas throughout your state, you may not be able to apply.
